Pilot Roads are my preferred tires by far. But those Mutants look way more off-roadish (pic below). Maybe they aren't any better than PRs even off-road? Having said that, I was pleasantly surprised with the stock Metzeler Z8s, but as soon as they're done (hopefully very soon. Ha ha), will buy the new Road6s, which are even cheaper (by 3 bucks) than the Road5s. Take care.
